The first debate is set for Monday for Republican U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania and his Democratic challenger, Katie McGinty, in an increasingly nasty race that could decide whether the GOP hangs onto its Senate majority.The first-term Toomey is among the Senate's most endangered Republicans, running for re-election in a state where registered Democrats hold a four-to-three advantage over Republicans.Toomey is backed by business associations and anti-tax and anti-regulation activists, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the American Bankers Association, conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch and the Washington, D.C.-based Club for Growth, where he was president before running for Senate.Toomey is ranked by the American Conservative Union as the third-most conservative Pennsylvania member of Congress and 13th among U.S. senators. A former investment banker and restaurateur, Toomey also served three U.S. House terms.
